MOTORCYCLE TECH:

For all those people with a need for speed, I have an upcoming product for you.  BMW Motorrad and Alpinestars are developing a line of clothing equipped with airbags.  Their first endeavor is a motorcycle jacket using Alpinestars’ Tech-Air technology.  Tech-Air is trademarked as being the first type of airbag to function without the need for motorcycle sensors.  An embedded algorithm on the clothing item monitors the wearer’s movements and once it calculates an accident or fall, the airbag is immediately released to protect the back, shoulders, chest and kidneys.  The Tech-Air line will debut this year with clothing for both men and women.
